Alhamdulillah manage to complete the course for a 10KM run last Saturday (actual distance was slightly shorter). Finished energetic despite lack of training. Took it easy, maintained a moderate heart rate and walked steadily up steep hills !
Some pics below :-
Starting from scratch (yes, months and months of being dormant) is not easy and I appreciate new runners who are starting of in their goals of becoming a fitter and healthier person. It is always a good thing to start something positive, no matter how small or short the steps.
To last a certain distance requires a commitment pre, during and after the event. Same applies sports other than running. The discipline built within will endure a person to last and achieve better satisfaction in future sports events. I have enjoyed this simple sports of running since I was a little child. It is the most basic form of sporting (unless you seriously consider sitting down playing competitive chess a ‘sport’ ) which can be picked up by anybody. Not much gears involved. Perhaps some basic knowledge on running, and the experience which comes with it.
Anyway, I made it to the finish line , happy, and that is all that matters to me. Knee and legs badly needs conditioning and I look forward to become fitter than the current stage I am in.
To all taking part in the Ironman 70.3 Putrajaya this weekend, my best wishes and luck ! Race smart and see you on race day, InsyaAllah. I will be there to support 🙂
